The Royal College of Music Museum hosts year-round temporary exhibitions so you can engage with its extensive collection of musical artefacts in new ways. The RCM was also the first music conservatoire to partner with the Google Cultural Institute, opening up our collections to audiences around the world.

Our museum and library curate a range of interactive digital exhibitions, drawing on key social and historical themes to enrich our understanding of music history. These exhibitions are hosted on Google Arts & Culture, where you can also take a virtual tour of the RCM and see some of the collections in situ around the building.
